SAN DIEGO: Homocon House Candidate Carl DeMaio Survives Primary

As expected, homocon Carl DeMaio finished second in yesterday’s open US House primary in San Diego and will face incumbent Democratic Rep. Scott Peters in November. NOM endorsee Kirk Jorgensen finished a distant third.

“Tonight’s win sends a national message to the Republican Party: San Diegans are fed up and frustrated,” DeMaio told supporters Tuesday. “We want the party to return to its traditional roots of standing up for personal freedoms where we allow individuals to decide social issues in the context of their own personal views on faith and family without interference from their government.” The 39-year-old DeMaio attracted attention earlier this year with an ad featuring him with his partner marching in a gay pride parade and another parodying the popular Netflix series “House of Cards.”

DeMaio has stressed his record over his personal background and is running on a platform of fiscal responsibility, job creation and congressional reform.
